Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium vs. XZ2 vs. XZ2 Compact: specs comparison

9

Earlier today, Sony announced that its Xperia XZ2 Premium smartphone - first unveiled in April - would be released in the US next month. The handset will be sold only unlocked, costing a whopping $999.99. This is the most expensive Sony smartphone in recent years, and the company justifies the high price by the fact that the new device is packed with its most advanced features yet, like a dual rear camera with native ISO up to 51,200 (a first for a mobile phone). 

As its name suggests, the Xperia XZ2 Premium is the prime member of Sony's latest series of high-end smartphones, which also includes the Xperia XZ2 (currently priced at $699) and Xperia XZ2 Compact ($599). While all three XZ2 models are powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor, the Premium obviously has more to offer, including the largest display with the highest pixel resolution.

A quick specs comparison between the Xperia XZ2 Premium, Xperia XZ2, and Xperia XZ2 Compact can be found below. Of course, specs alone do not make or break a phone, so we're looking forward to testing the XZ2 Premium and see if it's worth $1,000. Stay tuned for our review.
